The European Commission offers Bulgaria access to EUR 9.282 billion from the Recovery and Resilience Facility after the Covid-19 epidemic. Bulgaria will receive grants to the tune of EUR 6.131 billion and will be able to borrow another EUR 3.151 billion. The loans will be paid off by the EU members depending on the amount of their contributions to the EU budget. The funds will be allocated in separate installments under the national programs for reforms. The money must be allotted in line with the EU objectives for carbon-free economy and digitalization. In June, the European Council will discuss the proposals. The loans are expected to be repaid until 2058 and the countries will pay only interest rates until 2027. The information announced earlier that Bulgaria may receive EUR 15 billion was only indicative, the EC specified.
